PROFESSIONAL TRAINING SERVICES
Reimagine Horsemanship provides complete, professional training for horses of all breeds and educational levels. Our multidisciplinary approach blends classical dressage, natural horsemanship, ranch work, jumping, obstacle challenges, trail, and liberty work. Training programs are customized to the individual needs of each horse.
Horses are encouraged to think about how to respond to requests, as opposed to solely conditioned to form habits. This develops his capacity and desire for learning, and establishes the trust he needs to feel confident enough to look to his human partner for guidance when he is afraid or confused.
We work closely with nutritionists, bodyworkers, farriers, and vets to ensure the horse's overall physical needs are always met. Close attention is placed on the horse's levels of relaxation throughout his training sessions. We focus on coordinating properly with his natural biomechanics so muscle tension and fatigue can be avoided.
Along with classical schooling exercises, various tasks and activities are used to keep the horse's mind fresh and focused while we work on his athletic conditioning and responsiveness to cues. We want our horses to be good partners and companions so we work to obtain these qualities along with rideabiity.
*All riding horses are educated bitless in an academic cavesson or bosal. Bits can be used if requested by the client.
